Tom Hardy in ‘Locke’

Some trailers tell you everything about a movie before you’ve even bought the popcorn. Others create an enigmatic cloud that is difficult to navigate through, leaving little impression as to what is going on. The trailer for Locke is not like those trailers.

Locke is a new movie starring Tom Hardy, in which a man with a seemingly-normal life leaves work in Birmingham (the British one) and drives to London, making phone calls along the way.

Sounds drab? A little workaday? Nope. Watch this:

The film also starts Anglophenia favorites Ruth Wilson, Andrew Scott and Olivia Colman, and will hit theaters on April 18.
